Aaaaaand, it’s finally here.

ESPN Films’ “Mike and the Mad Dog” 30 for 30 documentary will make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21 in Manhattan, the festival announced Wednesday.

The film, directed by Daniel H. Forer, tells the story of Mike Francesa and Chris Russo, better known as “Mike and the Mad Dog,” during their 19-year run together on WFAN.

The pair went their separate ways in 2008 when Russo left WFAN but have made several appearances together since, including a reunion show at Radio City Music Hall in March 2016 and a simulcast during Radio Row at this year’s Super Bowl.
